Powers and Abilities



Superhuman Strength: Blue Marvel possesses vast levels of superhuman strength. He was seen as capable of effortlessly lifting the 1960 era's American warship 'Enterprise' [1] which weighs over 93,000 tons [2]. The Blue Marvel is capable of greater feats of strength as when he easily moved a meteor "easily the size of Arkanas."[3]

The Blue Marvel is even strong enough to strike with such force that he was able to make the Sentry bleed, knock him into orbit and momentarily knock him out all with a single punch. The Watcher states that Adam is capable of splitting the moon into two with a blow[4]. He was able to directly engage Iron man, Ares, Wonder Man and Ms. Marvel in combat at the same time and casually overpower them. [5]

Superhuman Durability : Blue Marvel has survived a hydrogen bomb blowing up in his hands unfazed [6]. He is capable of withstanding blows from a large collection of superhumans made up of Ms. Marvel, Ares, Iron Man, Wonder Man, and Sentry unharmed. Blue marvel can also breathe and survive in space [7].

Flight: Blue Marvel has been seen flying into space unaided under his own power [8], this means he is capable of reaching speeds of at least escape velocity (7 miles per second).

Superhuman Speed: Blue Marvel is capable of moving faster than any normal human being, and he is able to move fast enough to keep up with the Sentry.

Superhuman Reflexes: Blue Marvel is capable of catching bullets and dodging projectiles.

Strength level

Class 100+, Adam is capable of lifting far in excess of 100 tons easily. He is stated to be as strong as Sentry and in the same league as Hulk, and even Thor [9]. Namor also stated that the only other who have hit him as hard as Blue marvel were Hulk and Thor[10].
